Daydreamers by Jonathan Harper
Downtrodden workers at a towing company compete to repossess an elusive Mercedes; two men clash over their participation in a body modification ritual; a group of Dungeons & Dragons players find themselves unwelcome in an upscale resort; the discovery of a drowned corpse haunts two would-be lovers in a beach town. Ne’er-do-wells, prodigal sons and young men without a clue await to be met in these nine stories that speak to a new generation of hopefuls not usually found in contemporary queer fiction. A title featured as one of Kirkus’ Indie Books of the Month for July!
Jonathan has been toiling away at short stories for years. He earned an MFA. He’s the sort of writer who is very serious. He went through three different rounds of editors offering feedback on this book. Maybe that is why it received so many starred reviews. My hope is that it will win some awards. These are rich and funny and poignant gay stories. And, alas, Harper is happily married so we can only swoon from a distance (his husband is one of the sweetest guys). Jonathan is the sort of gent who carries a cigarette case with rainbow-colored cigarettes.
We have one copy of Daydreamers to give away. You may choose print or digital edition.
